Dear Bro. Dryfoos.
I hope it's not presumptuous of me to address you this way as I have
not yet taken my EA degree. I have, in fact only submitted my
application and met with the investigating committee. They will vote on
my application in the next few days and so if I have overstepped please
The point of this letter is to comment, as an applicant, on the

complete our bachelor's degrees. I take 12 hours of classes per term
minimum to meet my financial aide requirements. I am NOT too busy to
earn my way in freemasonry.
If I offend I beg forgiveness for this is only the opinion of the
